Lake changes in the Tibetan Plateau from space during the past four decades

Dienstag, 17. April 2018, 14:00 Uhr bis 15:00 Uhr

The Tibetan Plateau (TP), the highest and largest plateau in the world, has an extensive distribution of alpine lakes, which is integrated with climate, glaciers and permafrost changes. Lake area, level and volume changes during the past four decades are monitored using satellite multi-sensors data. Lake water surface temperature and differences of lake changes compared with adjacent regions and their responses to climate change are also quantified. The lake water balances are quantitatively evaluated by remote sensing observations and model simulation.
